Seo In Guk Reveals His Battle With Bulimia For a Past JYP Audition
The path to stardom is a difficult one, and Seo In Guk has shared his own personal battles on his journey.
On April 19, Seo In Guk appeared as an interviewee on YTN’s News And Issue- Issue And People and reflected on his past hardship when he auditioned for JYP.
During the interview, Seo In Guk revealed that after his initial audition for JYP, they told him they would like to see him after he shed some weight. Following those remarks, he became obsessed with his weight and found himself becoming bulimic as he would repeatedly eat, then force himself to vomit.
Though his acts did enable him to lose weight for his next JYP audition, the judges there told him, “Though you did lose a weight, it seems you didn’t practice your singing at all.” Seo In Guk later realized the repeated vomiting had taken a toll on his throat, affecting his singing abilities.
When asked by the anchor if that experience didn’t end up leaving him feeling dejected, Seo In Guk shared, “Rather, the experience gave me a lot of confidence,” as the singer would go on to win the first season of Mnet’s Superstar K.
We’re certainly glad to see Seo In Guk having overcome his personal issues and we wish him all the best in the future!
